I thought he was half black….

Black people aren’t the only ones with brown skin… ignoramus.

Um, he makes a point. And I don’t blame him.

Guy has big lips and a broad nose. It’s not always about the skin colour.

I don’t think it’s always about the features. If you cover his nose and lips he stills looks part Black or something.

he’s actually lighter than average Sri Lankan, who are dark-skinned people.

Well, I think his features fits him quite nicely.

He’s extremely underrated!

Sia or Iggy Azalea should SERIOUSLY feature him in their (international) music videos.

He needs to be KNOWN in America!!

He’s srilankan burger. Look it up. It’s not Indian

Found this . . so there’s definitely a link to India. (no need for unpleasantness Sarah)

“His father Ivan was also born in Malaysia and is of Sri Lankan Tamil descent with distant colonial Portuguese roots, while his mother Nellie is of English and Portuguese descent and was raised in India. They met while Ivan was studying geology in India and they married a year later. Sebastian is the second of four sons. His older brother Ollie was born in India.” Wikipedia
